Resort, parks and open spaces PSPO
We have a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) operating across the resort, our parks and open spaces and council land.
The order was introduced due to the following issues:
- Concerns of safety
- Concerns of Partners
- Links to the Habitat Management Plan and considering Protected species, heritage, archaeology, and natural habitats
- NELC has a legal duty under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 as a competent authority, to manage and protect the species and habitats of the Humber Estuary / Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), within the local authority boundary.
It is also part of the council’s wider management strategy for the Cleethorpes Coastline and forms an integral part of the delivery of the Cleethorpes Habitat Management Plan.
Public consultation was carried out and the results show 98% of respondents believe that our parks and open spaces, including the beach and seafront, should be safe and clean for all to use.
You can be issued with a fixed penalty of £100 if you breach the order. If you fail to pay the fixed penalty, it is likely you will be prosecuted in the magistrates’ court and be fined up to £1,000.
